. the presiding officer: the senator from arizona. mr. mccain: mr. president, i ask unanimous consent to address the senate as if in morning business. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. mccain: mr. president, i have a resolution at the desk and stk for its consideration -- and ask for its consideration. the presiding officer: the resolution will be received and appropriately referred. mr. mccain: thank you, mr. president. this resolution calls for an establishment of a select committee of the senate to make a thorough and complete investigation of the facts and circumstances surrounding, and the response of the united states government to the september 11, 2012, terrorist attacks against the united states consolate and personnel in benghazi, libya, and to make recommendations to prevent similar attacks in the future. i send that to the desk in behalf of myself, senator graham of south carolina, and senator ayotte of new hampshire. mr. president, before i go into the need for this select committee -- and there clearly is a need because there is a huge credibility gap amongst the americ
, but there are signs she is making sure she is well positioned for the future if she and mr. mccain lose. zen days before the '08 election it became clear whatever they were saying about how confident they were that they definitely were going to win, the plans republicans were making and the way they were positioning themselves, including to the press, indicated otherwise. that was october 28th, 2008. seven days before election day. now this past week it's anonymous paul ryan loyalists speculating about all the wonderful things paul ryan will do after mitt romney and he lose this election on fuse. then this past weekend a possible case of revenge for the loose lipped comments to the a.p. about paul ryan's post mitt romney future. check this out. this is amazing. this is from politico.com and kudos to them for getting it. campaign insiders say chris christie was actually mitt romney's first choice for the republican ticket. people involved in the election process said the campaign believed no one would be more in depth and persuasive at delivering romney's message. advisers thought christie would e
, i -- the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered. mr. mccain: i thank my colleagues -- i think my colleagues and i who have been here for a while remember one of the more moving experiences. that was the signing of the disabilities law on the white house long. bipartisan members of the disabled community were there. the president of the united states, george herbert walker bush, and so many others. but also one of the prime individuals that was largely responsible was our beloved leader at that time, bob dole. a man who epitomized, in my view, how a disability can be overcome and go to the highest levels of american government. i freely admit that i love bob dole, i listen to him, i appreciate his leadership. i think the majority leader would agree that we appreciate his bipartisanship during a great deal of his time. i hope my colleagues would, before deciding to vote, at least listen to the letter that was addressed to all of us by senator bob dole. as you may know, tomorrow the senate -- that we received yesterday. as you may know, tomorrow the senate will vote on crpd
to the truth. mr. mccain: will the gentleman yield for a question? mr. graham: yes. mr. mccain: one of the most salient points of this whole scenario was five days after the attack when the ambassador to the united nations went on all sunday shows to allege that this was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. those talking points that the ambassador used didn't come from the c.i.a., is my opinion understanding. but it came from the white house. who in the white house, who? was it the president of the unit states? was it one of his people? who was it that gave her talking points that iicated something for which there was no basis in fact, certainly not after five days. and did the president ask about this situation? did the president of the united states say wait a minute, is she going out there when -- right after on the program that i was on, "face the nation," th president of the libya national assembly came on right after and said this is an al qaeda attack, this is a terrorist attack. and then for days afterwards, the president of the united states goes out and including
. there was a time when i regarded mr. mccain as a gentleman. i am sad that this is not one of those moments. we see this great senator rushing off to a press event rather than going to the briefing on the facts. in his zeal to bend and ran -- to vent and rant as a result of the elections. the comments that she is not so bright, that she is untrustworthy -- these are comments that beg the question, when you look at her laudable resonate, much of which you heard from our distinguished delegates holmes nortmorton. so we are asking for them to walk back those comments. joining me here -- and i'm going to stop my comments at this point and call upon my good friend, the just elected chair of the congressional black caucus, rip marsha fudge from the district of ohio. -- rep. marcia fudge from the district of ohio. >> i am going to be brief also. i know when you lose, you get angry. but do not take it out on someone who had nothing to do with a loss. glenn yourself. how you say that someone was susan rice's background is not qualified? where did you finish in your class? i know one of them finished in the
in the second term than i was in the first. >> jonathan carl? >> thank you, mr. president. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham said today they want watergate-style hearings on the attack in benghazi and if you nominate susan rice as secretary of state they will do everything to block the nomination and senator graham said he doesn't trust her after benghazi. i would like your reaction to that and would those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> at this point i won't comment on various nominations i'll put forward to fill out my cabinet for the second term. those are thing that is are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should
. >> and senator kelly ayotte, lindsey graham and john mccain mrs. calling for a bipartisan senate panel to investigate the attack that left four americans dead. and a stunning endorsement set to be revealed tomorrow, but we have a sneak peek. nearly 500 former admirals and generals independent from mitt romney's campaign set to endorse him. and they'll run a full page ad in the washington times tomorrow and they're paying for the ad on their own. two days ago, they promised to send a generator from the canceled new york city marathon to areas hit by sandy. >> and a made it clear that all the assets that this marathon currently has generators, equipment, food, water, will be redeployed to people who need it. >> gretchen: but the new york post reporting that some the generators sat idle yesterday in a rental company's parking lot in new jersey and ten heaters hooked up in a medical tent for the marathon, even though they're no long her needed. >> brian: and the marathon people say they blame hostile media reaction to them holding the marathon and sponsors pushing them to canceled. they'd
that mr. romney is exceeding the share of white vote that went to senator john mccain four years ago, that will be a sign that he is replicating the coalition that gave president george w. bush a second term. i will be stationed just below where we are right now looking at exit polling and providing the information there. what do you make of this going back to the white vote according to the "new york times"? >> i think the racial composition of the vote is one tale tell sign if we're on our bark loungers tonight watching tamron hall report. we want to know that. we want to know what's going on in virginia after the polls close at 7:00 p.m. eastern time. if virginia goes to obama, it's a long nim for governor romney. >> steve, what are you watching? which battleground state, other than your own, that you're keeping an eye on that might be telling before the end of the night? by the way, this is governor romney and congressman ryan leaving ohio right now, steve. >> i agree with michael. i'm watching virginia. polls close there before i go on the air tonight. if obama wins, i think he
county. right now mr. romney is here john ess than w mccain was in 2008. not a good sign in old dominion. in ohio the romney campaign is looking for a big turn-out in southern ohio from coal country in the east on the pennsylvania, west virginia side to hamilton county cincinnati on the western side. with a big turn-out they may be able to overcome what is a substantial democratic turn-out in the northern part of the state around toledo where the detroit bail-out politics played very heavy. they keep watching and waiting recognizing that florida, ohio and virginia as they go, perhaps so goes the country, shep. >> carl cameron, thanks very much. let's get to chicago now and ed a nry following the obam campaign. of the battleground states, three of them are called. pennsylvania, michigan, wisconsin. all for president obama. >> big hoops and hollers here in chicago. they've got the volunteers streaming in behind me starting to come in for what they hope to be a celebration later. the president not here. he is still at his private residence. he had a family dinner. wife, children, mother-in-
to twitter writing, "mr. president, don't think for one minute i don't hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi." and senator mccain took his rebuttal to the floor of the senate. >> we believe whoever it is must be held responsible, i say to the president of the united states, most importantly, the president of the united states who is commander in chief. who so far, in my view, has not exercised those responsibilities and also not informed the american people of the facts. >> s.e., senator mccain went on to say yesterday there was either gross incompetence here or, in fact, a white house cover-up. >> yeah. >> what do you think -- and we've asked senator mccain this directly -- what do you think he and others suspect in the matter? >> well, a couple things. i think it's a little bizarre. the indignation over questioning susan rice is a little bizarre given that she was made by the president's own admission the spokesperson on that day for what happened in benghazi. she was sent out to the sunday shows, five of them, five days after benghazi, and five days after we already had some
6.1% from last year. mr. kilmeade? >> brian: despite her involvement in the libya scandal and who was really to blame, senator john mccain says he still might consider supporting susan rice for secretary of state if she's nominated. will other republicans follow suit? south carolina representative jeff duncan wrote a letter to the president opposing rice's potential nomination and joins us live from spartanburg right now. congressman, does senator mccain's stance change your stance, the fact that he will listen when it comes to her telling her side of the story? >> no. i think susan rice is tainted. she rolled out on five sunday talk shows with a message of the administration that this was a response to a violent -- violent response to a video and nothing was further from the truth. we know it was an act of terror. >> brian: we also know some other congressmen, many supported you in saying she should not be nominated. >> they are. we have about 100 signatures on the letter we sent to president obama saying there are other choices out there and susan rice is probably not the best c
